It has never been more important to take a closer look at Russia. Twenty-five years after the fall of the Soviet Union and a hundred years since the Bolshevik revolution, Russia is again at the heart of the political, economic and cultural conversations and conflicts that are reshaping the world. So, too, do global developments continue to reshape Russia, which is still in the midst of one of the most profound transformations in modern human history.
The mission of King’s Russia Institute is to support interdisciplinary, balanced and cutting-edge research on how Russia’s society, politics and economy function, on the country’s place and impact in global affairs, and on the Eurasian region more broadly. King's Russia Institute provides a focal point for Russia-related activities across a range of academic disciplines.
Situated in the heart of London, the King’s Russia Institute is a hub for discussion and debate, linking UK, Russian and global audiences in education, the cultural and creative sectors, business and government.
The Russia Institute is part of the School of Politics & Economics in the Faculty of Social Science and Public Policy.
